Treatment Options at Modern Foot & Ankle

Our skilled podiatrists will develop a personalized treatment plan based on the severity and progression of your arthritis. Treatment options include:

Conservative Therapy

Effective for early-stage arthritis, conservative care involves rest, anti-inflammatory medications, ice, compression, elevation, immobilization, bracing, physical therapy, and custom-molded orthotics.
